Many people with HIV use complementary or alternative therapies, often without the knowledge of their doctors. To encourage open communication with their patients, doctors need to be aware of what complementary therapies are available and willing to discuss their use. They are then in a better position to defend their patients against exploitation or unsafe treatment.
